In an age when media celebrity is a popular aspiration, this book assembles the stories of 25 men and women who undertook perilous expeditions and accomplished remarkable feats to achieve their fame. Rather than the well-chronicled Shackleton or TE Lawrence, the selection highlights less well-known adventurers from Lady Hester Stanhope, who undertook the first archaeological dig in Palestine in 1815, to George Mallory who may have conquered Everest in 1924, but did not return to tell the tale.
